Stolen mail delivery reaches ‘milestone’

New Zealand Post has completed the delayed delivery of more than 18,000 pieces of mail allegedly stolen by a postie.

The final batch of about 2300 letters and packages was delivered on Sunday when nine NZ Post staff delivered to about 900 homes in the Queenstown area.

Spokesman Michael Tull said the delivery was "a bit of a milestone" and most of the mail had gone to the intended recipients, despite the transient nature of the town’s population.
